Bicentennial Symposia

Bicentennial Symposia

A select number of significant symposia will be hosted around topics that showcase IU’s unique strengths. For example, the 40th Bayh-Dole Act anniversary would highlight a Hoosier luminary and the impact on university research.

The Future of Higher Education: A Uniquely IU Perspective would bring together 300+ alumni and former faculty members that have served as college or university presidents and chancellors to speak as special commentators.

The Gateway Bicentennial Research Symposia would celebrate IU’s long and distinguished history of global engagement by partnering with universities at each of IU’s Global Gateway sites.
